Can you find what doesn't belong in this hospital waiting room?
. . Yes, it's Simon Pigeon. The entire staff passed him around and hugged Simon ... got lots of attention. Simon is welcome to visit my Mother anytime while she recovers from minor surgery.

150309 2731 Pigeons Egyptians first time loose Cleopatra Nile

 I'm so excited. First time in their lives... my 2.5yo Egyptian Swift Pigeons, Nile and Cleopatra, were able to be free outside to explore. They did NOT fly away, walked around for 1/2 hour, mingled with the Chickens and other Pigeons, then went back into the Aviary to their OWN nest. Such a relief. I was anxious to see them fly, but they didn't. I was hoping they'd fly to the deck to see me... maybe next time?
. . I got them last Nov, secured ever since. Did not want to take a chance they'd fly away in the dead of winter. Now I know they feel they are "home".
